Barack Obama’s choice of a prominent evangelical minister [Rick Warren] to deliver the invocation at his inauguration is a conciliatory gesture toward social conservatives who opposed him in November, but it is drawing fierce challenges from a gay rights movement that – in the wake of a gay marriage ban in California – is looking for a fight.
Okay, now I know this is ancient history, occurring as it did in early October, but does anyone remember Joe "Where Has He Been? Are They Keeping Him Sedated?" Biden during the vice-presidential candidate debate saying that he and Obama supported the position that marriage is only between a man and a woman? Oh yes, he did - so why are the gays surprised?
